Poured into a glass,it has a golden color body with a small head to it. The aroma has that pil smell of floral/corn to it. The taste has a sweet maltyness to it with some spice to it. The mouthfeel is nice, very drinkable and overall a really good take on mixing styles.

A: Poured a nice deep yellow, clear, with good carbonation and a nice white head. The head has some staying power providing a few curtains of lacing and foam

S: I smell pils all the way...some light corn and floral/grassy notes with a dab of honey

T: Pils notes upfront, the ale yeast provides a bit of "wetness" to it along with some light citrus and a wee bit of Earthiness and spice. Mid palate I get more of a light sweet tough and some floral/grassy notes. The finish has a nice easy going hop bitterness and a little dry

M: The body is light with medium-heavy carbonation and a refreshingly crisp finish.

O: Nice hybrid of styles. Easy to drink, no major flaws.
